    I would like to make Easter Cookies and send them to my Daughter and Son.
    A problem I'm having is, They like a frosting made of confectioners sugar not sure it will survive a trip to Washinton State and New Jersey, I live in Florida. What are your thoughts?

    Not knowing the type of cookie as well as the type of icing it’s hard to say.

    If it’s a sugar type cookie with royal icing, it should ship well. But it’s always advisable to wrap each cookie individually, The reason being is they will stay fresher longer. Also if one cookie goes bad in transit, mold won’t spread to the other cookies. You can wrap each cookie in plastic wrap, or purchase cellophane treat bags at big box stores like Michaels, Walmart, or JoAnn’s.

    When shipping various types of cookies in a tin, pack cookies of similar texture together. So crispy types like shortbread can be packed in the same tin as biscotti. But don’t pack soft cookies and crunchy cookies in the same tin as the moisture in the soft cookies can soften the crispy cookies.

    I have a cookie business in which I ship cookies all over the US. If you're making a frosting with confectioners sugar, butter, vanilla, milk (or anything like a buttercream), they will not ship well at all. Royal icing is made with confectioner's sugar but hardens a bit, and that ships very well.
